I have a iPod Nano 7th Generation with me and now I am just trying to transfer the audio music files from iPod Nano but I am not able to do that. What should I do to make it work? Is it not possible at all? Do I have to do the iOS update for making it work or so? Kindly provide me the information.

Anyway, all iPods are mainly designed for users to enjoy music comfortably. Moreover, there is no doubt that most of iPods version cannot contain too much music files, especially for those keen on high-quality sounds, because those HQ music takes up large storage. Doing a backup for iPod music becomes a must for iPod users, like the questioner above.
